cool, I will give you/anyone else some more specs on the issue I am having. This last may 2013 i noticed a flare up with my achilles when I walked down the stairs I felt a sharp pain on the back of my heel. Turned out I over trained with a combination of running and p90x. I went to the PT and he had me stretch a SHIT ton i.e. calve (wall stretch) and soleus stretch to increase range of motion everyday, ice , and then on appointments he would massage, Ultrasound, and sometimes needle and topical steroidal inject my tendon. about mid July he cleared me... I guess I did not ease myself back into aggressive training because I ran and hiked horse tooth (mountain in fort collins) and my achilles ached again.
I went back to a different PT in late august she told me my range of motion was good and i did not need to stretch (?) she has basically til now gave me negative calf raises to do every day and Ice. the last appointment I had was on 10/8/13 and she encouraged me to run twice until my next appointment on 10/17/13. I ran yesterday about 6.5mph for 8 min. with no pain but my heel does ache for about a '1' based on a scale of 1 being least amount of pain to 10 being the highest.
